HAPPY news!


So, on the tail of the sad news of my Godmother's death, I have incredibly HAPPY news to share with you! I created this special card JUST for my announcement today.

A new challenge blog is starting up and it is going to be a bit different than the crafty world is familiar with. And different is good. Very good. What does CAS mean to you? "Clean and simple" is the typical answer, but I prefer "clean and sophisticated" to paraphrase one of my talented teammates.

*SQUEAL*




 Do you see that incredible headline marquee above?
 IT HAS MY NAME IN IT!!!!!

I am officially a Girl Friday at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog. *swoon* 
I am so honored and giddy to be chosen to work with such a talented team. 
Julie and Michele have my undying devotion, not only for their talent and how hard they work, but for giving me a chance to showcase my CAS cards and work with some really incredible designers like:
and a few more to come! *wink*

My announcement is at the CAS-ual Fridays blog, so go check it out and leave me some love! I feel seriously outnumbered by all the talent on this team and hope I can prove my worth.

Thanks for sharing in my excitement!
*mwah*
